Andersson, Ann-Sofie, 2011. Stamskador i gallringsbestånd. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



This study was conducted on a property with a thinning machine team. The purpose was to investigate in which machine, the harvester or the forwarder, that caused most damage to the trees in six different stands. Different factors, related to the damage frequency in the stands, were checked out. For example: basal area per hectare, thinning strength, tree diameter and the rate of production.
The harvester drivers were also interviewed about how, when and why stem damages occur and how to minimize them.
The study stated that 4.3 percent of the trees were damaged. Out of these 88 percent was caused by the harvester and the rest, 12 percent, by the forwarder.
